Phyllis’ classes are inspired by her love of travel, nature, music, meditation and her personal yoga practice.

She has practiced yoga since 2003 and she began teaching in 2011.
With a love of adventure, Phyllis brings a spark of enthusiasm and playfulness to her yoga classes.
A consistent practice has brought peacefulness and joy which she loves to share with those around her.

classes, corporate classes and internationally in studios, small ocean platforms and yoga festivals.
